COMING IN

A 3-1 win at home over Edmonton Saturday night extended the Flames' winning streak to five games. Calgary has won seven of eight.

The Preds have also won five straight, the latest a 4-1 victory over Columbus that saw former Hitmen Jerred Smithson score twice. Nashville has won 13 of its last 16.

HEAD-TO-HEAD

It hasn't been pretty for the Flames in recent years against the Predators. Including a 3-2 defeat at the 'Dome in October, the Flames have lost the last six meetings and have only one win in the last 11 (1-8-2). It's been a hurtin' song in the Music City, where the Flames are 1-8-1 in their last 10 visits.

WHO'S HOT

FLAMES -- Byron Ritchie was given an assist on Jeff Friesen's goal, giving him four goals and a helper in his last five games.

PREDATORS -- Proving the scoring is coming from nearly everyone, J.P. Dumont is riding a six-game point streak with eight points (1-7-8).

WHO'S NOT

FLAMES -- Jamie Lundmark, no goals in 37 games, was a healthy scratch Saturday night and may be again tonight.

PREDATORS -- The nifty and shifty Martin Erat has only one goal in his last 20 games.

FLAMES INJURY REPORT
